This is Odysseus in his home back at Ithica. He is the ruler and his wife Penelope has just had a son.
After his son`s birth Odysseus gets called to war but is hesitant to join the fight against Troy
Call to adventure
I have to take care of my kingdom and family
You must come fight at Troy with me
The only reason Odysseus refused was because he didn`t want to leave his family and kingdom. Then remembers he made an oath to Menelous.
I like Odysseus , I`m going to help him out
Crossing the threshold
you suck! And you`re eye is ugly!
Daddy make them die or at least a crappy journey
With help from the two gods (Hermes and Athena) Odysseus is able to get out of many of the situations he is. for example when his men meet Circe Hermes gives him molly and advice to get his men back
" The story of Odysseus begins with the godess Athena`s appealing to Zeus to help Odysseus..."
As Odysseus is returning home from Troy he gets into some trouble with the cyclops Polythemus. Little did he know the cyclops was a son of Poseidon`s and daddy`s little boy prayed for Odysseus`s trouble home
" ...he (Polythemus) and stretched his hands out in his darkness toward his sky of stars, and prayed to Poseidon..."
" Should destiny intend that he (Odysseus)shall see his roof again among his family in his father land,far be that day, and dark the years between."
Since Odysseus is bound by the god Poseidon to have a rough journey home him and his men encounter many difficult tasks they have to do . This makes Odysseus loose all his men and 10 years to get back home.
